until 14.04. | #3371ARTatBerlin | Galerie SCHMALFUSS BERLIN presents from 12th March 2022 the double exhibition “Die Prinzessin und das rote Haus in Venedig” (> The Princess and the Red House in Venice) with sculptures by Hans Scheib and paintings by Andreas Homberg. Both artists studied in Dresden starting in 1971, now they exhibit their works in wood, bronze and on canvas together for the first time in our Berlin gallery.

Under the title “The Princess and the Red House in Venice”, Galerie Schmalfuß in Berlin-Charlottenburg presents an exhibition full of poetry and colour from Saturday 12 March. “I am very pleased, especially in times like these, to be able to present two such extraordinary artistic personalities as Hans Scheib and Andreas Homberg together,” says Michael Schmalfuß.

Until 9 April, about a dozen colourful wood and bronze sculptures by the renowned sculptor Hans Scheib are on display. He is known above all for his mythical creatures, for graceful animal sculptures; however, 90 percent of the artist’s work is devoted to the depiction of women, says gallery owner Michael Schmalfuß. The sculptor creates an artistic monument to them.

The exhibition is rounded off by 25 poetic oil paintings by the painter and graphic artist Andreas Homberg, who now lives in Neubrandenburg. Some of them were created only recently: Landscapes such as “View over the Elbe”, “River Landscape”, “Lady in the Forest” or “The Couple” bear witness to the artist’s tremendous creative power, always reducing his surroundings to the essential. Expressive and in sparkling colours. This luminosity can also be found in Hans Scheib’s sculptures.

Hans Scheib and Andreas Homberg met in their childhood in the eastern part of Berlin, during a painting and drawing course. Their careers as artists began in 1971 with their simultaneous admission to the art academy in Dresden. Years later, both were to move to the north of the republic. After graduating, Hans Scheib moved to Berlin, first to the eastern part of the city, and finally to West Berlin in 1985. Since then, their paths have crossed again and again, but so far these encounters have never resulted in a joint exhibition. It was only recently that they began exhibiting together. “The Princess and the Red House in Venice” is their first joint exhibition in Berlin.

“We have been working intensively with Hans Scheib for more than 20 years,” Michael Schmalfuß emphasises. “It was his express wish to be exhibited in combination with an artist who has accompanied his life’s journey. We were happy to comply with this wish.”

Over the past fifty years, Hans Scheib has become one of the most important contemporary German sculptors. He is internationally renowned and has received numerous awards. His works are represented in the Pinakothek in Dresden as well as in numerous renowned collections. The formal language of the now 70-year-old is considered archaic, predominantly expressive, sometimes also naturalistic. Through the colourful painting of his sculptures, he builds a bridge to painting. His works encompass the entire spectrum of human impression. Poetic, like the “Primavera”, ironic, like the depiction of the “Ina”, or grotesque, as can easily be seen when looking at the “Hasenmädchen”. In any case, almost always with a little wink.

Andreas Homberg’s paintings are dedicated to the vastness of landscapes. This is much more than a mere backdrop. Whether sea, forest or park, Homberg is above all concerned with togetherness, with human existence embedded in the respective environment. We are part of our environment, just as it is part of us. This arc of tension determines Homberg’s works, whose colourfulness certainly allows for melancholy, but forbids gloom.

Opening: Saturday, 12 March 2022, noon to 8:00 pm. Admission for recovered/vaccinated (2/3) with digital vaccination certificate and FFP2 mask

Exhibition dates: Saturday, 12 March to Saturday, 9 April 2022 – ATTENTION: extended until Thursday, 14th April 2022
